Well, this wasn't what I was expecting, though that turned out OK in the end. I was hoping for a paranormal romance with high Fae influence and lots of action and maybe even some unrequited love.I'm not really sure why I thought that that's what The Kingdom was about.What I did get was a great love story with just a bit of Fae and folklore in the beginning. There was just enough magic to keep me totally engrossed, and I finished reading it in one sitting. The ending however, well that's where all of the magic happened. There were fights-to-the-death, hostile kingdom take-overs and even Cupid made an appearance.All in all, it was a good read. I think you could really enjoy it at the pool or the beach. While it was set in Ireland, (raining quiet a lot in the story) it was still a happy, sunny love story. For those of you wanting lots of paranormal/fantasy aspects, this isn't it, but if you want a great love story with enough fantasy to keep your blood pumping, The Kingdom rules.

When I first heard about the subject matter of this book, I thought it was unique in and of itself. You always hear about stories of people who shouldn't fall in love but do, nevertheless. However, Ms. Barry's approach to this subject was unlike any I have ever read. I immediately fell in love with Rioghan and Lily. The beautiful scenery of Ireland makes a magnificent backdrop to the magical story of the unlikely pair. I was totally transported to that world and was unable to put the book down until I finished it, and when I did finish it, I was very eager to hear more of their story. I totally identified with the headstrong Lily and found myself getting intrigued with Rioghan right along with her. I would recommend The Kingdom to anyone who enjoys magical worlds, unlikely romances, beautiful imagery, or even just mythical beings.
